Science and Engineering Fair Information

Science Fair

The Viewmont Elementary School Science and Engineering Fair is a great opportunity to engage with your children and discover a love for science! In past years Viewmont has had strong representation at the district and region competition levels hosted by the U of U, and we’d love to do it again!

All grade levels are welcome to participate, but 4th grade and younger are non-competitive.

Here are a few more places to find help:

Check out this webpage – Viewmont Science and Engineering Fair. It has all the information you need to participate in the fair.

Guidebooks – you can pick up a guidebook found across from the front office that you may find helpful in walking you and your child through a project. Your child can choose to take part in one of these categories; The Scientific Method or Engineering Design Process. There is a packet for whichever one your child decides to participate in.

Science Fair Club – Open to all Murray School District students interested in doing a Science or Engineering Project. The Science Fair Club will be held the first and third Thursday (Nov. 4, 18; Dec 12, 16; Jan. 6, 20) at Murray High School, room number 332, 330 PM – 415 PM
